Yellow is a notoriously difficult shade to get right in nail polish terms, so I was interested to give this a go from Bourjois, as I recently discovered a love of their 1 second polish range.
Sunny Sunday is a sunny, lemon yellow shade, which on close inspection has a very fine iridescence running through it – it doesn’t translate to photo’s, and it doesn’t really translate when applied to nails either – it looks like a cream when applied.
As with the rest of the polishes in this range, this has a thicker texture – it does still need two coats though, as I found that one coat looked streaky. After a second coat, although it’s not perfect it’s probably the least problematic yellow I’ve ever used – two coats gave opaque coverage. It does look a little bit bubbly, but I think this is probably due to my application, rather than with any fault in the polish.
On the downside, this polish did take longer to dry than the other polishes I’ve tried in this range, even with a fast dry top coat. I also found it didn’t wear too well, and chipped pretty quickly. It’s a fun, summery colour though, and if you like to change polishes often, the chipping might not be too bothersome to you.
Sunny Sunday is available now, and retails at £5.99
